I have tested a connection using MS Query ok here.  what steps are you taking to connect the database?

The steps I used were as follows:

From the Data Menu
Select From Other Sources
Select From Microsoft Query
Select MS Access Database (if this doesn't exist you need to add it back in...settings  attached)
Click OK
Select the database file to use...then follow the prompts to add the data to your worksheet.
